Ford Announces New Finance Incentives

October 15, 2014

Ford announced some great new finance incentives for new car buyers just in the last few days.  Buyers of several vehicles lines including the 2014 Fusion, 2014 Mustang, 2014 Explorer, 2014 Edge, 2014 Expedition, and more have the opportunity to qualify for 0% APR for up to 72 months.  This program is set to expire on October 31, 2014.  This is not a very common program for Ford to run as they generally cap the 0% offers to 60 months, but right now they’ve elected to extend all the way to 72 months allowing qualified buyers to get that lower payment all while paying no interest.

Ford Hybrids: Racking Up Sales and Mileage

Ford Hybrids: Racking Up Sales and Mileage

Leave it to Ford to buck the industry trend. While hybrid sales across the industry are down 14 percent, sales of Ford hybrid cars and SUVs are up 73 percent. Curiously, more than 60 percent of these Ford hybrid customers previously owned an import car. Also curious is the way that taxi companies in New York and San Francisco are using Ford hybrids, racking up 300,000 miles on them before retiring them. Read on for more milestones that Ford hybrids are reaching.

The fuel economy and durability of hybrid versions of Ford Fusion and Escape and also Mercury Milan and Mariner are winning over large numbers of conquest customers, many of whom are previous import owners. Through September, Ford hybrid-vehicle sales are up 73 percent versus the same period in 2008, according to figures from Autodata Inc.

“Hybrid customers increasingly are considering Ford,” said David Finnegan, Ford hybrid marketing manager. ”More than 60 percent of Fusion Hybrid sales have been from non-Ford owners, and more than half of those are customers coming from import brands, mostly from Toyota and Honda.”

Ford’s strong 2009 hybrid sales have been fueled by the introduction of the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan hybrids, the most fuel-efficient midsize sedans on the road. Both vehicles deliver an EPA-estimated 41 mpg rating in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, topping the Toyota Camry hybrid by 8 mpg in the city and 2 mpg on the highway.

Consumer Reports: Ford Quality Among the Best

October 29, 2009

DEARBORN — Already producing world-class initial quality, Ford now is the only U.S. domestic automaker with world-class reliability, according to Consumer Reports, which released details Tuesday of its 2009 Annual Car Reliability Survey.

The magazine's news release heralded the company’s quality improvement, stating in the headline that "Ford Secures Place Among World's Most Reliable Carmakers." 

According to the Consumer Reports release, "Ford's sustained production of vehicles that are as dependable – or better than – some of the industry's best dispels the notion that only Japanese manufacturers make reliable cars.  Other than the Toyota Prius, the reliability of the 4-cylinder Fusion and Milan ranks higher than that of any other family sedan.  Both of those Ford Motor Company products continue to beat the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, while the upscale Lincoln MKZ tops its rivals, the Acura TL and Lexus ES."

David Champion, senior director of Consumer Reports' Automotive Test Center, had additional praise for Ford's trio of mid-size sedans.   

"It's rare for Consumer Reports to see family sedans from domestic carmakers continue to beat the reliability scores of such highly regarded Japanese models as the Camry and Accord," said Champion in the news release.

Overall, about 90 percent of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury products were rated average or better reliability in the Consumer Reports survey.   

"The Ford team has a commitment to be world class in quality, and we’ve made consistent strides over the last five years," said Bennie Fowler, group vice president, Ford Global Quality.  "Today is a great day for us and for our customers, to have such a highly regarded third party – Consumer Reports — recognize us for what we already know." 

The Ford Mustang V-6 was among the most reliable vehicles in the "Sporty Cars/Coupes and Convertibles" category.  The new Ford Flex also performed well in the study. 

Consumer Reports says its 2009 reliability survey is based on responses on more than 1.4 million vehicles owned or leased by subscribers to the magazine or its Web site.  The survey was conducted in the spring of 2009 and covers model years 2000 to 2009.

2010 Fusion In-Stock!

March 28, 2009

The All-New 2010 Ford Fusion is now in-stock and ready for delivery!  Ford is taking aim at the mid-size car segment just like they did 32 years ago with trucks and we all know the results of that…32 years in a row as the number one selling truck in America.  Not only does the Fusion Hybrid out perform Toyota's Camry hybrid but the new 2.5 liter I-4 cylinder gas engine out performs Toyota's four cylinder gas engine as well.  Toyota Camry's 2.4 liter I-4 puts out a modest 158 horse-power with 161 lb-feet of torque.  The new 2.5 liter I-4 in the Fusion puts out an eye popping 175 horse-power with 172 Ib-feet of torque.  One would expect the Toyota to get better gas mileage right?  Well not anymore.  The Fusion gets 23 mpg (city) and 34 mpg (hwy) compared to 21 mpg and 31 mpg for the Toyota.  So let's do a quick recap…Ford Fusion has more power and better fuel economy than the Toyota Camry.  With Ford's quality improving faster than any other manufacturer over the last four years it won't be long before a new champion is crowned in the mid-size car segment, and it looks like the blue oval will take home the hardware.  If you haven't driven a Ford lately then do yourself a favor and Drive One.
